Tech startup introduces an all-in-one wearable life monitor.
SAN ANTONIO, TX, December 02, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- WiseWear, a San Antonio-based digital health company, announced on Monday, December 1 the launch of its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, for its first product offering, Evolve, an all-in-one wearable life monitoring device that offers users the ability to track and monitor their vital signs in a simple, seamless, and intuitive manner.
Using a unique sensor technology platform, Evolve does more than just count steps - it leverages a highly integrated sensor system to collect biometric data and accurately measure heart rate, respiration, and blood oxygenation. In turn, it uses this data to determine dehydration prediction, fatigue estimation, accurate calorie count, and more.
It also has the ability to automatically identify common exercises, assess the intensity of each workout, and log the data for future reference. Evolve takes the user's experience and monitoring to an unparalleled level.
"WiseWear was founded on the basis of challenging the current state of wearable technology to prove that wearables can collect more key biometric data points in order to fully understand the complexity of the human body," said WiseWear CEO and founder Dr. Gerald Wilmink.
Unlike any other wearable device in the current market, Evolve uses a unique core sensor platform called the "Nomad" that precisely collects biometric data based on the type and level of activity. In the shape of a poker chip, the Nomad can seamlessly move from a chest strap for high-intensity workouts, to a wristwatch accessory for the remaining 96% of your daily routine. Intimate data is then wirelessly streamed to the user's device of choice through the most advanced Bluetooth technology for immediate assessment.
Through the Indiegogo campaign, WiseWear hopes to reach its fundraising goal of $100,000 to close out the $1.5 million seed-funding round. Campaign funds will directly support product development and manufacturing, and ensure a timely release to get it on the market by the fourth quarter of 2015.
The various funding levels offer a variety of rewards for backers, from WiseWear branded merchandise to all-inclusive product packages. Higher tiers are geared towards incentivizing group purchases as large as 100 Evolve sensors.
The Indiegogo campaign for WiseWear's Evolve sensor runs until January 15th, 2015 and can be found at the following link: http://igg.me/p/1013582/x/9244721.
WiseWear envisions a world where people have the ability to lead happier, healthier, and more productive lives through the use of integrated sensing technologies. Our mission is to empower consumers by creating tools that allow them to see inside the wonder and complexity of the human body, and in turn, take action to improve the quality of their lives. Evolve is the first step to making that dream a reality.
